My Teacher The Peach









This morning I experienced a most amazing peach from my peach tree. I cut it carefully into elegant wedges and together savored every juicy moment. Tasting such beauty was a sacrament.

I felt invited into this temple of awareness by my teacher The Peach. This peach has grown slowly throughout the summer, on a tree that only last autumn seemed to have succumbed to drought, slugs and general hardship.
Still, I fed it organic compost, mulched it generously and watered it with respect and the hope that it might still have some desire and ability to stay here and drink in the light of one more summer. And–it did!

What I noticed about this peach was the uncountable dimensions of its flavorful sweetness. This was a peach whose spirit had traveled through the portals of sickness, near-death and re-birth, only to reappear as a ripe, sensual expression of beauty, sweetness and nourishment.

A person, place or peach who has traveled through the veils of transformation has a story to tell you–and no matter how rough the journey, the nourishment derived from such a journey is always juicy, nourishing and life-giving.

Isn’t today is a good day to taste, and learn from, a peach?
